I just checked on that little Roe Doe I shot the other day and she had what I think is a a Ked hanging off of her fur. She's in the chiller at 5 degrees and it seems very sluggish. It's definately not a Tick and looks like a small flat spider.
Are they common? I've not shot hundreds of Deer like some of you but in the 50 or so I have shot I've never seen one before? This makes me think that they don't turn up that often?
Ugly things aren't they! And how come I've only just found one?!
